I was only here for two nights back in Feb 2017, i like the pool and is never super busy, which was nice, nice views from the room, and like that there was a fridge and felt more like an apartment then a hotel. The service is the Breakfeast buffet was a little lacking,but at the same time i enjoyed the little buffet they had set up, quick and easy. I really want to try coming back here as a solo traveler, and stay more days and explore around the city!
I stayed here for five nights and had a very pleasant stay. On reading some of the reviews before I booked I was not entirely sure if I should stay. But glad I did. This was my 3rd visit to Panama (love it) I had previously stayed at the Multiplaza, actually i also stayed at the Multiplaza for one night at the beginning of my trip. Back to the Apartments. I was celebrating a milestone birthday and was not happy after stating this when i booked as a long term Marriot member with my room. I had a party of 8 plus myself with 4 rooms booked and the other 3 were all nicer rooms than mine. There is some opportunity to do some repair upkeeping that is understandable its a reasonable size hotel. I wanted a higher floor was given a room on the 5th floor. One in my party was on the 7th floor with sweeping views of the city very nice. Very disappointed that my request was not honoured as it is obvious it was more an oversight than rooms not being available if other members of my party had better rooms. The drainage in our bathroom was not very good and the smell was very bad at times. I had a one bedroom apartment and four of us fitted quite comfortably The apartment had every thing needed, you would be able to cook and iron do your own laundry, the laundromat was on the same floor even though the one on the 5th was broken when we stayed. The service of the restaurant and the food for breakfast was very good, no less than what i would expect. The restaurant team were great. Helpful and great hosts at the same time. The location of the hotel worked for me very close to Cinta Costera i ran most mornings and there was parking for my car. I would for sure stay at this hotel again despite the flaws that i have called out, its location, the staff in general made the difference. Yes there are some opportunities and i do believe had i been more vocal i would have been better assisted but i just could not be bothered as it really was not that bad. So there you go the good bad and the ugly. Would stay again but disappointed my special occasion and reason for trip was totally ignored by the staff.
We stayed here April 7-11 and loved it! It was a full apartment with a fully equipped kitchen, a very comfy king bed, fold out couches and chair, living room, den and two tvs. It was nice to have a seperate bedroom to put our son in. The pool area is really nice but the sun shines in the kid pool and not the adult pool leaving the adult pool quite cold. The breakfast was free and was quite good, especially the waffles. The hotel is clean and nice. The Lobby could use some work, they could benefit from having staff at their bar, takes a long time when u order room service (fries and coke took 35 mins) and staff aren't overly friendly but I would absolutely go back.
Our trip for a family of four was truly great in 1 bedroom suite. Room was pretty good size with a kitchenette. The daily breakfast is exactly what you need to get the day going, great pool, gym (sauna), and restaurant. I couldn't have asked for anything more as this is located in the middle of city. The staff was pleasant and my initial greeting upon arrival was welcoming! Would stay again if around the area. Only challenge is just the traffic to get to and from at times to the hotel. But that is just unavoidable no matter where you are going! Thanks to the Marriott staff for making our trip memorable, appreciate everything!!
We came for 2 nights. Flew in early am and they let us check in. Big clean room and service everywhere is excellent. They are all very helpful. The sofa bed doesn't come with sheets so if plan on using it, ask for sheets . They will deliver them . Also there is car service outside. Feel free to bargain with them to get to airport, casca viejo etc.
I had my doubts as there is nothing around this hotel compared to the regular Marriott which is more centrally located. However as a family of 4 we had 2-bed, 2-bath, family room, dining area, kitchen and (most imp with 2 teens) 3 TVs in the penthouse floor here. The fitness center is brand new but poorly air conditioned and there is a pool/hot tub. The staff does not speak English well so that was challenging when asking for directions/recommendations (ask for Aurelio who works evenings - he was most helpful). The space this apt afforded us was exactly what we needed to decompress mid-day and at the end of the day. There is a modern grocery store within walking distance where we picked up b'fast essentials, snacks, fruit, and drinks and having a fridge to store and kitchen to cook was very helpful. We spent 5 nights and for anything above 2 nights I would stay here again.
The Marriott Executive Apartments was an excellent choice and conveniently located downtown to all of the hot spots. The vehicular traffic was a little weird but, other than that, our room was great. The staff were friendly and extremely helpful in all of our needs. The hotel restaurant had an awesome breakfast and filled our energy stores through lunch. The hotel bar was not the best and it is unknown whether it is manned by the clerks or a bartender. Regardless, we highly recommend the hotel for visitors wanting to experience the Bella Vista and surrounding neighborhoods. Security Police were nearly everywhere and were very helpful with directions, and providing that feeling of safety and security. Lastly, I recommend hiring a driver or using a reputable taxi service to reduce the stress of driving in the Panamanian traffic. They have their own courtesies..."None". We shall return for a third visit...for a "Rinse & Repeat". Love ya' Panama!!!
Close to supermarket, shopping mall, Restaurants and night life.....Room were very clean, and service was amazing... Recommended 100% The Hotel has a Transportation services, ask for Jorge, he is the best, great tour person,very good prices and very knowledge.
Another great four day stay at the Best hotel in Panama. Stayed in one of the apartments on the 11 floor with a great view of the canal and city. As it has been in the past the room was spotless and every day when I came back to my room it was clean and everything was in perfect order. The staff is always accommodating and friendly. Having a rental car and the location and ease of the parking garage makes everything so much easier to get around the city. The food was excellent as usual. The quiet pool area with the nice views was very relaxing and so easy to use. Having a separate kitchen and refrigerator is so nice when traveling and makes it so convenient. I would highly recommend this hotel for all kinds of travelers.
We spent five nights after Christmas leading into New Year's here at this hotel. The check-in was easy and the staff was very friendly. Make sure when you take a taxi you tell them you're going to Marriott executive apartments not Marriott Hotel which is located nearby. We had a nice studio which is spacious with separate study area. The kitchen is small with standard refrigerator, microwave, and oven. You have to call the staff to have them turn on the gas. The utensils and kitchen supplies are skimpy. Oh, when we arrived there was a nice cheese and crackers platter to welcome preferred Marriott guests. The bathroom is small for a room the size. The location is really good because it is near the coastal area where you can walk in the morning or at sunset. I would not walk at night though since you are in downtown. I think the area is generally safe though. You are within walking distance to Subway station and plenty of affordable food vendors. A large supermarket Reba Smith is within five minutes by foot. Breakfast was included with our package. They are very good with combination of local and American style food. The ubiquitous waffle and omelette station were part of their of they're offering for breakfast.
